Sponsor a Family for the Holidays!
"I want to thank you for all you do. Last night we delivered gifts to a very grateful family. The little girl was worried she wouldn't be getting any presents this year. We were glad we made sure that didn't happen. Your program makes givers and receivers feel amazing. Thank you again." - ODB supporter Jennifer, who sponsored an ODB family for the Holidays
"This experience changed our Christmas. Seeing the hardship of others and acting to alleviate it had a big impact on my whole family. I know on Christmas morning, as my kids opened their own gifts, they saw everything with new eyes." – READ Laura's Story: "The Gift of Giving"
